    But still their electoral system with half being proportional and half "winner takes all" got them what, 80% of MPs? With just under 50% votes.
    They've been learning from the UK then.
    Or the US. Shitty electoral systems are not a Russian invention.
    Have you seen the French electoral system?
    Whats wrong with their system for national assembly?
    Did you read it? It's first past the post with a run off for each constituency. While the run off isn't a bad idea, it's still first past the post and not a representative election. France still manages to include a lot of smaller parties though.

    I did yes. I like the idea of voting directly for your preferred candidate and while i know there are systems to help with that in a representative systems not a single one is as good as voting directly for them. If France manages to include a variety of smaller parties in their parliament that also have a fair amount of sway and enable direct voting of candidates its prefered to the system we have in Slovenia for example.
